You have to be patient when you work with Kecap Tuyul, that's what CDRX learnt with this new collaborative work. A long watery/nocturnal soundscape was sent to KT back in 2009, and it took him 2 years to complete it with guitar & bass overdubs. Artwork was created by CDRX. A new mail collaboration project has started in spring 2011 between the 2 sound manipulators... ( 1 reviews ) Topics: CDRX, Kecap Tuyul, soundscape, field recordings, experimental, drone
Restes, Kecap Tuyul's new solo album is quite different from the previous ones, although, like most of his works, based on improvisations on prepared guitar. This raw material has been overdubbed later and gave birth to some kind of weird, foggy "songs" (?) Topics: experimental, free rock, improvisation, atmospheric, Kecap Tuyul, eg0cide
Last summer, Kecap Tuyul visted Mescalibur for a live meeting after many on-line collaborations. They selected the best parts of their improvisation sessions to publish the second volume of Mescalibur's "Lagrange' sessions", noisier and more agitated than the 1st volume (with tgbts), although also featuring some atmospheric / droney moments. NB: Since 2013 Mescalibur & Kecap Tuyul have chosen to call their duo "Helyptronics". Check "their blog for more free music...

Rain Spirits, Half Evidence's new album has been recorded (mostly) during the rainy month of april 2013 in Champagnac-la-Prune. Totally improvised as usual, these tracks show the most melodic side of the band, including some almost bluesy/jazzy atmospheres - but still within the band's personal blend of peaceful drifts and grittier percussive/scrapping sounds.

Time after time, Half Evidence's sound becomes more incisive, and their playing more focused, alternating smoothly between meditative atmospheres and explosive intensities . Their new album Entreciel (consisting of 2 tracks improvised and recorded on 9 november 2014) features also a regular use of voices by both members Charles premier and Kecap Tuyul, which enhances the incantatory dimension of their music.

Prepared guitar is still at the core of his music, but voice and melodies are getting more in the foreground than before. The tracks of the album were loosely recorded between 2009 & 2014, and patiently mixed between 2012 & 2015 in various places.

This 2nd album of the XtetX was recorded before the first published one Nabemono (recorded in may 2015). At this time (november-december 2014), the XtetX had no name yet, and comprised only 3 members : Jules/Valentin, Kecap Tuyul and Missing O. Their will to play with other improvisers progressively led them to define themselves as an open collective with a variable team, rather than a band with a permanent staff.The title (2X2)² is an allusion to the album 2X2 (eg0cide productions, 2012)...

L'anorkhestra is a free improvisation band with variable members. The 2 tracks of Smashed Bulbs Enlightment were recorded summer 2012. They mix abstract landscapes and raw free rock blasts, in a way that sometimes reminds me the spirit of the most radical "kraut rock" recordings in the early 70s.

XtetX is a free improvisation collective that was founded around the end of 2014. It comprises from 2 to X members depending on the occasion. After various sessions as a trio and duo, their first playing time as quartet took place in may 2015 and gave birth to the material published today on their first album Nabemono.. Don't be mistaken by the introductory track : XtetX is not a rock band, but they've decided not to restraint themselves to a specific esthetic. They are able to produce catchy...
